On Sunday, may 8 we'll leave Amsterdam and take the train to Paris. Once we get there we'll try to see more art than what we saw in Amsterdam. We'll visit for sure the Louve, I just want to see the Monalisa and a couple of paints from the renaissance period. Then we'll go to the Arc du Triumph, the Champ Elysees and Notre Dame Cathedral. I can't wait to jump in those things outside the cathedral, according to the urban myth, those who jump on them will come back to Paris. So I'll jump and jump and jump until another tourist kick me un the butt.
Do you know visiting Paris has been my dream since I was little? Courtesi of my grandpa who made me watched "El Mundo al Vuelo con Hector Mora", so as soon as I get there I'll go to the Eiffel Tower and probably seat for a minute and cry, and I won't care if i look stupid, I know they'll be tears of joy! Probably I'll go back there daily to see it during the day or at night, and that moment will be priceless, because I'll be looking at my childhood dream holding on to the man I love!
I hope you had fun reading about our trip. If you have any comments or suggestions about restaurants, museums, clubs or just regular shit to do in any of those cities send us an e-mail or post a comment, we'd love to hear from you.
Caro & Chris!
What's up guys? How are you doing? Here everything is fine. We are really excited about our trip(we'll leave in 10 days). Since time is short, 3 days in Amsterdam and 4 in Paris Chris and I came out with a list of places we want to see once we get there. In Amsterdam we'll go to the Ann Frank's Museum, I read the book when I was 12 years old and got really impressed by the way they lived, so we definitely want to see the house. The Vang Gogh Museum is another must see. We love art, so I'm sure we'll enjoy it and why not, perhaps we buy some postcards and send some back to you. The water market is another place I want to go and lucky me is right across the street from our hotel(Hotle Atlanta). I can't wait to buy some clogs. The "Heineken Experience" will be another fun thing to do. For all of you who don't know me I never drink, but what the hell, we won't leave the Heineken factory without drinking a couple of "frias". Ok now the XXX part, so for all of you who don't want to know this part of the trip please jump to the Paris itinerary. As you all know Amsterdam is famous for a couple of things: art, bicycles, prostitutes and marihuana, oh well I want to experience the whole vibe of the city, so here we go. Sorry family members, mom and dad but I can't wait to see the prostitutes in the windows, not that I care or pay but I'm sure is one of those things everybody want to see. The Red Light District is world famous and I won't pass right by it pretending it doesn't exist, so once we get there I want to go to the Erotic museum and the Hash and Marihuana museum(I've never smoked in my life, but I want to see what's in the museum, you know, educate myself). And to close the night we'll go to Casa Rosso, but what's in Casa Rosso? Well, "Live sex on stage, performers demonstrate everything from positions from the Kama Sutra to pole dances, unbelievable tricks involving candles and moves we are more commonly associate with competition figure skating" (lonely plane, Amsterdam) So for all of you moralistic people this is not the place to be, but for us(Chris and me) YUPI!!!!!
